"There’s a lot of risk in creativity. By definition it’s painting outside the lines. Which instantly gets some pushback. And, it’s got no safety net. Not only in terms of making it a career, but also in terms of being judged. With art, you’re never safe from criticism. And there’s no true measure of success. You have to be your own arbiter. That’s tough. So I think it’s fairly stressful to be creative. And some people don’t find it rewarding. Like spontaneity, it comes with danger. It’s probably not even necessary for some. But for those who crave it, it’s good to seek out people who are living it. If only to just know they exist. Because when you know someone else is able to do it, you can talk yourself into taking the leap."
